the wrong bit game. that is the only time that you have leverage. if you don't raise the debt ceiling right away, it's not defaulting on their loans. the treasury secretary can cut other spending. it is basically a government shutdown. republicans have lost that in the past. but i think unless there is something that the president has to lose, you don't have any leverage in the spending cuts. gerri: you know, the far left and far right will think that that -- well, the different analyses of what happened. they think will lives lost in the last debate what do you make of that? the republicans were in a much weaker bargaining position. what speaker boehner was doing anything that taxes went up at midnight on december 31. he actually got a tax cut compared where would've been. everybody else was going to get higher income taxes and they didn't. in this case from the president keeps more than what speaker boehner caved. the. gerri: you make a good point. i wanted to respond one more thing, which i found interesting. steve moore of "the wall street journal" said we had heard that i'm not going t
in the debt ceiling deal, right? >> yes. so we're going to have to resolve what was left untouched, which is the spending side. and hopefully there will be an agreement on long-term and medium-term reforms on the spending side. so that we can focus on other things. >> what about the federal reserve, that was also in the news, the fed releasing the minutes this week. there was word that a number of members of the fed wanted to stop this bond buying program, this so-called quantitative easing, at the end of this year. i mean, here we've got spending cuts, we've got uncertainties in the economy, and the one stimulus that everyone has been really looking forward to, the federal reserve stimulus, is now being threatened to come to an end this year. >> yes, so the market got worried, uh-oh, maybe the market is not as worried about qe as we thought. i think that's the wrong interpretation, maria. what we think is more likely is that certain members on the fomc are putting the market down. they are reminding others, including the politicians, that there are costs and risks involved in what the fe
to fix the problem. >> going forward on the debt ceiling, newt gingrich had it right on friday when said it was a dead loser for republicans to threaten to thank tank the united states economy by refusing to pay our own bills. this is not about future payments. this is about paying bills already due and owing. like we get up one morning and say we are not going to pay our mortgage. that is reckless and irresponse irresponsible. kind of the madman theory to negotiations. give us what we want is what republicans say or we will tank the united states economy. that is reckless and irresponsible and we won't do it. >> what it reckless is not addressing the problem and that is what we want to do. >> let's look at the way this may unfold. the president say if this is tied to the debt ceiling it is not a discussion i'm going to have. speaker boehner said we talked about raising the debt ceiling and we want an equal or greater offset in taxes or other cuts. equal or greater offset rather in spending cuts. mitch mcconnell. let's listen to what he said. >> now, that he has the tax rates he wants hi
is absolutely right when he says that using the debt ceiling as part of this fight would be an absolute catastrophe for the country. you know, people talk about hostage taking. who's the hostage here? the hostage here is the american economy. the hostage here are the american people. we're saying, if you don't give us what we want, we will risk wrecking the economy. that's bad substantively and dumb politics. and i noticed that mr. mcconnell did not answer your question, which made me wonder where he is on this. >> it's important to talk about what the debt ceiling really is. the debt ceiling is not the future. it's the past. it's allowing us to borrow money to pay for money we already borrowed. it's as if we spend money on our credit card and say at the end of the month i'm not going to pay it, and it wrecks your credit. it's not about future opportunity to borrow. it's spending already incurred. and if you look back at 2011, you can see the job numbers, the dip in the summer of 2011, when we went through that hostage taking. >> this is a matter of politics, carly, the reality is you h
, because right now i think the debt ceiling debate we are going to be having coming up in february is going to be even more rancorous than the one that we just that. republicans think they gave away taxation- > they are digging in their heels. > > and now they are going to get spending cuts, whereas the democrats are saying, "if you are going to get more spending cuts, you've got to give me more tax increases." so i think the end of february could be very interesting and very ugly for the markets. > the fiscal cliff of all mothers of fiscal cliff, or however you want to put it, it could be a lot worse. brent schutte from bmo harris. thanks so much. > > thank you. still ahead, the new year's top vacation destinations and deals. dominican republic, anyone?

for caution. we don't expect much out of earning season. and then we're going to go right into the debt ceiling debate. >> when you say you don't expect much from earning season, what do you mean? do you think we'll see a flat showing? where's the strength and weakness? >> well, we think to some degree it's not going to be as relevant because the market is really looking forward here. we're looking out to the end of the year when we have housing, globally coordinated recovery. so this earning season to some degree is old news. we think the markets are going to be much more focused on the debt ceiling debate short-term and the good news we see down the road long-term. >> jack, you know, we all just went through that whole debate over the fiscal cliff. and now we're gearing up for another fight in washington. that over the debt ceiling. how rankerous will it be? >> it's remarkable how low volatility is right now. to me it would seem investors are complacent as if we just haven't done this just the other day. yeah. i see more and more problems. i see more volatility. more uncertainty. and,

. >>> the administration's economic priority right now is the raising of the debt ceiling. u.s. has gotta lift it by the end of february or early march or else it will default on its fiscal obligations. this should be a routine exercise but republicans once again are threatening to hold the debt limit increase hostage in exchange for spending cuts which happened back in august of 2011 and standard & poors downgraded our credit rating at just the threat of default alone. as republicans call for a dollar for dollar match raising the debt ceiling versus spending cuts is very important that we remember this is an illogical demand. the debt ceiling has to do with paying off the bills that we've already incurred. we want to talk about future spending cuts and future deficit reduction. that's entirely separate conversation. in fact, democratic house leader nancy pelosi says the president should side step the fake fight altogether and vote the 14th amendment. we're back after the break. and invoke the 14th amendment. we're back after the break. now.

at hole and that is the debt ceiling as we enter into this new year. tony, is that going to play a part, will that maybe prevent you from being more bullish in this environment because there is still so much uncertainty? >> you know what? i think politicians are starting to realize they can't play this jousting match they have been having with the last debt ceiling, the fiscal cliff which is behind us temporarily. so i think when they come to the table with a solution, the markets are going to rally just like they have in the past. i think they're going to come up with a solution but until there is a solution, until there is something, i think we'll see some volatility. but i really think they will come to the table with a good, solid solution. it will give republicans a chance to put their foot down on some of these, on some of this public spending. and it is going to be positive for the investor. ashley: bob, let me finish with you. you like emerging markets. people say that a but which market in particular are you particularly hot on right now? >> well, actually we think china is poi
got this fiscal crisis, we've got a debt ceiling discussion, we've got senator mcconnell saying, listen, we got to find ways to cut entitlements. isn't this smack in the middle of that debate when you're charging $300,000? >> well, we charge $295,000 because of really three things. one, the burden of illness of the condition you described, $200,000 to $600,000 a year is the cost for each one of these patients. we charge $295 because of the value that gattax brings. reducing the nutrition, 15% of patients getting off of nutrition altogether and improvement in the quality of life. and third, there's a premium associated with treating only 3,000 to 5,000 patients in the u.s. >> so the insurance companies would actually favor using your drug than doing what they're currently doing for these people. >> that's exactly right actually. 100% of the payers said that they would reimburse gattex. 76% of the physicians said that they will prescribe gattex independent from the cost. and about 100% of the patients said they will try gattex. >> let's go over when people talk about cutting medic
does that mean for the three major debates ahead? the battle over the debt ceiling, sequester, the continues budget resolution? >> that's to my point. right now all the committees of congress should be meeting. the people on agriculture should be saying what can we do to make cuts here and make some changes there? the defense appropriations committee should be meeting. the housing committee should be meeting. all the various appropriating and authorizing committees should be meeting. and be involved in this process instead of leaving it to the last minute to three people. you can't run a country that way. like i said, you can't run a business that way. if i spent as little time running my business as the congress does conducting its business, why, we would have been out of business a long time ago. >> minnesota congressman rick nolan. again, congratulations. and come back and see us again. thank you so much. >> thank you. delighted to be here. >>> that wraps up this hour of "jansing & co." >>> coming up next on the agenda, the political calculations of picking senator chuck ha

be onboard with playing games with constantly raising the debt ceiling, do you? >> i don't think that we are are constantly raising it but i do believe and i agree with -- >> neil: well, we have done it 52 times in the post war period, right? >> we have done it but we always paid our debts and we don't quibble about paying debts. it is something that we know we have to do. we make them and we must pay them. >> neil: congress appropriates the funds and you can't come back later on and say we are not paying. i do see the wisdom of that. but i see it also in the power of congress to decide that and not nix the congress and trust a rather loose interpretation of an amendment put together in 1868 to force the issue. >> i think we can avoid that and we can avoid it if we create enough jobs for our people to be able to work, then, of course, they are paying as we go. >> neil: absolutely. you're right. this becomes a moot point if the economy picks up. but you you know what troubles me, congressman. you and i have chatted about, well, kind this of before. that we spend an enormous amount of time

the debt ceiling? you know, are we able to overcome this big crude oil build that everybody expects is going to happen this week. right now, it seems like the crude oil is driven higher by heating oil. cold temperatures in the northeast downgrading forecasts, driving up the heating oil. that's dragging up the crude oil, kicking and screaming right now. melissa: i feel like with iran, they sell more oil than we know or than what they tell us. there's so much sold under the radar, but, still, natural gas -- >> i think they are, yeah. melissa: yeah, more natural gas production than ever beforement we know that. is that impacting the market? >> it is, they were colder than normal. we had a good rally, and it's unusual to get a big picture report to move the market, but shortly after that report came out that said natural gas production was up that much, the market did sell off so it's amazing. i think people are realizing the impact of the record production on gas prices, and it's bringing them down now. melissa: thanks so much. >> thanks. melissa: going to cost you more, and by forever
. >> all right. why don't we talk about the fiscal cliff, and -- or i should say the debt ceiling once we got through the fiscal cliff. this is the next big issue that's roiling washington. how big of an impact does that have on the business community? >> i think it's huge. i think it's more important than the fiscal cliff. i think it would have been better that we went over the cliff than if we do not pay our debts. and i just shocked, dismayed, stunned that we did not have a grand bargain that included the debt ceiling increase. and i think it's a big failure of this process. and it sounds like they both sides now are digging in and we're going to get to a more serious crisis relative to the debt ceiling than the fiscal cliff was. >> yeah, you could talk about who won the last battle, who won, who lost, where things stand, but this is a real issue, and i think there are a lot of people who may not understand. if we don't deal with the debt ceiling, i mean, this is a situation where america's borrowing costs could rise for decades 20 come, correct? >> yes. and it just -- it makes us look
to be extremely critical to investor sentiment. we're dealing with a lot of head winds with the debt ceiling crisis and some of these other fiscal policies taking place, be it the health care regulations here in the u.s. i think investors are really going to be focusing on what companies are saying for 2013. >> and what are companies like to do with their spare cash? are we going to see more buybacks? >> that's a good question. i think buybacks is probably the trend of the times right now more than the m&a when companies had a lot of cash to spare. if you look at 2000, 1999 or maybe even 200 a, 2006, you were seeing m&a. now i think you're seeing more buybacks. that's a trend of the times, like you said. >> where is that going to leave the p/e ratios? >> the s&p right now is trading at 4.9 outs of forward multiple. you know, you can look at it as stocks being cheap right now. you can really make that argument. if you're saying that we've come out of the great recession and we're in that area where we're start to go rise in terms of our economic prowess, then you could say stocks are cheap. i
in this situation, talking about the debt ceiling and spending cuts. that was exactly the issue that caused the downgrading of the united states of america. that is at issue. the very same things that provoked that downgrade are on the table right now. and so it's hard for investors to forget the reaction to markets that we saw. it may not happen, but it does hearken back to that period. >> right. it's funny, there are a lot of questions still in terms of spending cuts. you have no idea how it spreads across the economy, whether you are a professor at a university expecting a $4 million grant from nasa for physics research. i have spoken to one of these people. and not sure whether you're going to get it. to, of course, the enormous expenditures to defense, that are still out there and question marks. granted, we do have a little more structure to the tax policy in this country for now, but we may be entering a debate of further tax reform dealing with deductions and the like and the spending cuts that many believe are also key to putting us on firm fiscal footing. >> right. >> earnings at
of intransigence. that the damage that came out, the the summer of 2011 with the debt ceil ceiling debate, the public didn't engage deeply with that policy debate was they sniffed out -- because they sniffed out very early on, they saw this was a purely symbolic debate. there really were no merits to why the debt ceiling should or shouldn't go up. it was being used as a political tool to make other political arguments. and people were very frustrated about that, and the republican party or took the brunt of the blame for that. nobody came out of that debt ceiling debate looking good. obama's ratings went down, but the republican party's ratings went down much further. and that was when we first really started to see a wider opening in the gap of for perceptions of the two political parties, the leaders of the two political parties. and the republican party has not overcome that image now, and they're going into a very similar debate from the public's perspective now playing at least to this point a very similar strategy. and it's probably, you know, not going to work terribly well for the
